I have some extra time this morning. So I'm going to just plow on....

It looks like we're starting to run into childless people. I've already run into a lot of women who seemed to be having a hard time getting pregnant... but these people are childless..... I wonder what that means.

According to Biblestudytools.com the name Seled means affliction or warning. I checked out a whole lot of commentaries looking for any reason Jether died without children.

Sometimes we just don't know why....
